About Us

Debs has lived in the Cardrona valley longer than any -where else in New Zealand… this is her home.

It is located between Wanaka and Queenstown on the Crown Range road.

The stables is situated 25 kilometres up the Cardrona Valley from Wanaka directly opposite the Snow Park entrance on the right hand side.

It’s a pleasant 20 minute drive (on a sealed road) with high country stations on either side of the valley floor.

From Queenstown it is 2km past the iconic Cardrona Hotel the main surviving local historic building on the left.

Back in the late 1800s the area was home to thousands of gold miners and even now the ruins of their accommodation and mine workings abound.  You can’t miss seeing them as your horse riding trip weaves around the hills and through the valleys of this beautiful part of New Zealand.

Debs invites you to share in her passion for horse trekking. Come and experience the thrill of a horse ride  on her Appaloosas.  She’s worked hard on putting together a riding package that over time has proven to be a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
